Song of the Day: Under The Influence – Mike Dignam

MIKE DIGNAM‘s latest single, ‘Under The Influence’, marks a soulful turn for the British songwriter, as well as his new role as producer. His soulful, gritty pop comes through the slick self-production, and further portrays the musician’s raw vulnerability and stellar vocal.

Speaking about the track, Mike says:

“Under The Influence” was entirely self-produced so I’m unbelievably proud of it. It’s the first record I’ve ever produced and I’ve since gone on to produce my entire album, which will be out early 2020.

Having been away for nearly 3 years now, it feels more important to me than anything I’ve put out so far, and definitely my best works to date. The song is about the idea of heartbreak having control over you, like alcohol or substance abuse, a drug and asking to be excused for out of character actions because this feeling has completely taken over.”

His hiatus didn’t do anything to dampen his fans love for the music, as demonstrated by the artist’s most recent gig in Manchester back in August, which sold out in less than two hours. Through this performance, he introduced his whole next album from start to finish for a captivated audience, and even treated them to a preview of a song from his third album. With such a show of support, a UK tour has since been announced culminated at Manchester’s Gorilla (500 capacity) on 30th November (see details below).
